EllaHarp is the project of San Francisco-based singer-songwriter and harpist Ella Dawn Jenkins who caught our attention in the past with her ability to mend classical elements of the harp with a modern pop sensibility. This was seen on tracks such as “Shotgun Sadie” and “Screaming Into the Void” which we previously shared.

“Sunshine and Roses” is her latest single and one that may be her finest work to date. The track moves deftly with a pop prowess that is complimented with a warm glow by her harp. Her gorgeous vocal performance is one that feels readymade to be used in a critical cinematic moment in a movie or TV scene.

You can find the music video for “Sunshine and Roses” below where we have also included a quote from her about its meaning.

‘Sunshine And Roses’ may set expectations of a happy song by a happy harpist, but it doesn’t meet them. Written about my ongoing battle with depression, this song was my way of admitting to myself that I’m not ok all the time.
